This set of Christmas graphs contains simple printables that could be worked on by preschoolers and more challenging printables for kindergarten and first graders. Today’s set is the third in a set of five Christmas themed printables I am sharing this week. Yesterday I shared long and short vowel word sorts. On Monday I shared a set of Elf on the Shelf themed number recognition printables. After exploring today Christmas graphs, I hope you will check them out.
Using the Christmas Graphs
Getting Ready to Use Christmas Graphs
Before you get started you will need to download and print out the Count, Graph, and Color Christmas Set You could have your children start with Christmas tree sheet with fewer pictures if you like.
Ways to Use the Christmas Tree Graphs
Counting and Coloring
Your children will need to start by counting how many of each object there is on each tree. You can have them color the pictures before they count if you like. Another option is to count as they color.
Children don’t have to color all the similar ornaments the same color. It might make it easier for them to count them if they are the same.
The Christmas graphs don’t say how your children to graph their data. They were left open-ended so you could decide how you want your children graph.
Children could color in the boxes beside pictures to show how many of each object they counted. That would give them experience with making a bar graph.
Your children could try to draw smaller version of each of the pictures in the boxes. That would give them a chance to create a picture graph.
